    What our patients say about Dana-Farber

    Esther Zaff with her family

    Esther's story*

    "I am alive today because of four things: my stem cell donor, my amazing Dana-Farber doctor/researcher Joseph Antin, the amazing nurses who continue to care for me, and my fabulous family. I had a successful transplant in 2007 for Aplastic Anemia caused by a rare disorder. From the second I met him, I knew Dr. Antin was the best in the transplant game. He and the entire staff at Dana-Farber worked seamlessly together to deliver first-rate care to me every single day. It was a rough road but I survived because I came to Dana-Farber. My daughters have a mother because I came to Dana-Farber. My husband can grow old with me because I came to Dana-Farber. I owe my entire life as I know it to my decision to come to Dana-Farber.

    "The unique quality of Dana-Farber is its ability to excel at both the art and science of research and patient care. To hold fast to its traditions while constantly innovating. To treat every patient as a unique individual with a unique story. To not only care FOR me, but ABOUT me. I was unlucky in needing a transplant, but I was incredibly lucky in finding Dana-Farber."
